Southwest Regional Manufacturers Association adds Arthrex supervisor New board member comes with background in aerospace, education
FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 23, 2019) – The newest member of the Southwest Regional Manufacturers Association (SRMA) Board of Directors brings energy and years of experience. The addition of Michael Koszewnik, manufacturing trainer supervisor at Arthrex, furthers the association’s commitment to connect Southwest Florida manufacturers with vital information and educational resources.
“Mike’s technical skills and broad knowledge of the manufacturing industry positions him as an excellent addition to the board of directors,” SRMA Executive Director Neil Kagan said. “I’m excited about his ability to help expand our reach in Collier County and do more for manufacturers here.”
Koszewnik began his manufacturing career in 1974, when he embarked on a 17-year run in aerospace. He started as an operator but was quickly promoted to supervisor, and he also taught classes at Pinellas Technical College in Clearwater. Later, he began teaching full-time at the college.
When Arthrex recognized they needed someone like Koszewnik to join their team, he did not disappoint. Koszewnik accepted the challenge of building a formal apprenticeship program and technical training group. He has been with the innovative orthopedic medical device company for 10 years and is currently a manufacturing trainer and supervisor.
Koszewnik will help the SRMA plan events like the Establishing Metrics Roundtable Discussion on June 19 from 8-9:30 a.m. at Career Source Southwest Florida on 4150 Ford Street Extension in Fort Myers. The cost is $20 for non-members and $10 for members. For more information about SRMA events, visit www.srma.net/category/events.
